If Aesop is right and a man can be judged by the company he keeps a mind can perhaps be judged by the books it reads (or desires to?).

Below are books that I've liked and disliked, loved and hated, laughed about and cried into. Most of them, though, are yet to be read. Of the ones I have read I've starred those I found particular insightful or moving. Just like my physical bookshelf, they are in no particular order. If I've read the book in another language (I squeak by in French and Spanish) I've left it in the original.

Some other people whose book recommendations I always find interesting:
-Patrick Collison
-Tyler Cowen
-Ben Casnocha

In no particular order:
